Federal prosecutors say 81-year-old Joseph Amari of Fair Lawn pleaded guilty Wednesday to a complaint charging him with receipt of child pornography.

Amari admitted that he used peer-to-peer file-sharing software to download the images and videos in February 2007. He faces a mandatory minimum penalty of five years in prison when he's sentenced May 13, and could receive as much as 20 years.

Amari is currently serving a state prison sentence for unrelated child endangerment charges.
